and the company could drop the coverage. what do you think? >> it has nothing to do with obamacare. this is only a matter of time before the republicans blame obamacare for rising sea levels. this has nothing to do with federal legislation and everything with common economic sense. if husband and wife are both working why should the wife's employer pick up the cost for both of them? why shouldn't the husband's employer pick up its share of the family's health bill? that is fair. by the way, they're not dropping kids. they're just dropping the spouses -- >> no. wait a minute. you're -- wait, hang on. let's go to rich carlsgard. the law says rich, spouses or families. if your benefits are at a certain lel the companies will be hit with a tax on that plan. they could be -- i'm talk about the extenses of the plan. they could be hit with a tax. the companies in fact are telling kaiser-permanente the companies are saying they may drop the coverage. go ahead, rich karlgaard. >> you can't keep up with the details of this. on a day-by-day basis, more comply cases resize. reduce this to the ultimate simpl
obamacare and doing everything they can to make sure it is not successful because we have had strong recruitment they have done a great job at recruiting top tiered candidates. they will be in the position to take advantage of the fact that you have a lot of voters that have elected incumbents who already have buyers remorse. they do not want an extremist representing them. they want us to work together and know that you cannot have everything your way and work out a reasonable way to reduce our deficit, create jobs, smoothly implement obamacare and make sure we focus on allowing everybody in america to have an opportunity to succeed. republicans are focused on making sure that president obama cannot be successful. that is unacceptable to most people. >> can we switch the topic to the nsa? this divide both parties. within your party, you see very strong defenders of the surveillance programs that are going on. i wonder if this is something you have gotten involved in. have you made a bridge or does not fall within your bailiwick? >> it certainly falls within my bailiwick on the off

supportive of their agenda, ushering in obamacare and certainly more and more debt. he needs to be replaced and we need someone there who understands that our country is going bankrupt and we need to rein in government. he needs to be replaced, but greta, it doesn't have to be me, there are thousands of good alaskans with that servant's heart with that ability and the desire to serve we the people. i think it's kind of hilarious that mark begich wants to use my name as his fundraising tool. he's kinds of in a panic there being threatened, i guess. but it doesn't have to be me. and as of this date, i am not planning to run for the u.s. senate, but i certainly would never say never in this case. >> so does that mean if i could sort of sum this up, that the door is open, but no decisions have been made, it's not closed on the thought s that what you're thinking about? >> the door is never going to be closed in terms of opportunity that could be out there to serve people who are see deserving of common sense conservative values. but mark begich and all those far left senators, they do need to b
the hashtag on facebook or twitter. get ready, obamacare is coming. the changes in here are big. this will reshape health insurance markets, it will change the way we access and pay doctors, hospitals and drug companies. make no mistake, it will effect you no matter who you are. this law is more than 900 pages long and boy it is complicated. opposition has been fierce. if you're not insured you will have to buy coverage or pay a fine. if you, like most americans, who get their coverage through work are insured, it still effects you. now, this show will be your source of information about obamacare. i'm going to help you navigate in beast as it rolls out so that you can get the most for your money. now, there is a lot in here. let's start with something basic, a doctor's visit. this law is supposed to give more people access to medical care but what if there are not enough doctors in your area? by 2020 it is estimated that there will be a short m of 45,000 family doctors in rural, inner city america it is worse. david is our main man on obamacare and he's read every line of this
of planned parenthood through obamacare. a new report is out showing a nearly a million dollars in grant money is being given to a number of centers nationwide to help sign people up for health insurance under the conversal law. molly henneberg live for us in washington with these details. molly? >> reporter: heather, planned parenthood applied for and received the grant money any, called a navigator grant, it is marked to help people learn and navigate through the obamacare health insurance exchanges. the but republicans say this is round-about way to get money to the largest abortion provider in the country. planned parenthood is unique to talk to young women and under obamacare. how the grant money will be used a spokesperson said, quote, these grants will enable local planned parenthood affiliates to help enroll in new, more offaffordable plans that cover preventative care, maternity care, emergency care. these have nothing to do with abortions and won't be used for abortion services. but republican lawmakers, tennessee representative diane black is not buying it. president obama pro
't think it's a smart strategy to shut down the government as a method of defending obamacare. i think if you want to do it, do it on the debt limit, don't do it on shutting down the government because our economy's so precarious right now, and shutting down the government won't stop obamacare one iota. it'll continue to roll out. we're limited, and it's hard to -- a couple of points i'd make is republicans control the house of representatives. that's one-sixth of the total government. we don't control the presidency, we don't control the senate, and we have-- according to recent court decisions -- very little influence on the court. the second point is when they do those things, as a u.s. senator, i don't have standing in a court of law. so, you know, i've got letters out right now chastising the justice d., asking them why they have not cooperated with the government accountability office. by law they have the cooperate. except this add mrtle's -- administration's refusing to do so on multiple events across multiple agencies. so i think in a lot of ways they're lawless in terms of th
to defund obamacare. [applause] and it makes a difference that we're all here speaking with one voice. but i can tell you what the smart people in washington are saying right now. i can tell you what the chattering class are saying. they're saying there's all of us here with our commitment to principle, with spending our thursday night together. it's all of us here that are the reason washington doesn't work. we're the reason that nothing gets done in washington. which is juss an astounding idea. in the last 12 years, washington, d.c. has passed mccain-feingold campaign finance reform, sar bane oxley, dodd frank, no child left behind. e passed medicare part d and we passed obamacare. in any other period in our country's life this amount of legislation of this magnitude would be historic. but we're told that washington doesn't work. washington is not broken. washington is a finely tuned machine that is aimed at expanding government, taking away our freedoms and picking winners and losers in the economy. [applause] but here's the dirty secret. all of us in this room together, when we stick tog
. >> have to say i am concerned about the immigrants more than obamacare. [inaudible] obama will not obey the law. you and i know that. is -- iknow what it have communicated with them. there are too many republicans that will not tell the truth. that is what i like about what you're doing. you're telling the truth. [inaudible] have been a republican for years. >> i think the only way for changes that they hear from the people. >> i am ready to hand write letters. i don't know what else to do. they are not going to change. thank you for what you are doing. can someone take a picture? thank you. you are one of my heroes. >> the privilege is mine. >> senator, it is a pleasure to meet you. your motivating a lot of us. i appreciate it. i hope one of you guys are the next president. [inaudible] >> we have got to have more scrutiny. it has to be driven from the house. in my view, what the house -- the chief prosecutors, i have been urging them. [inaudible] i think they systematically walked through the facts. the advantage of a select -- [inaudible] >> really nice meeting you. >> thank you for c
hold the budget hostage on defunding obamacare, it's never going to work. the debt ceiling is a worse idea. house leadership is engaged in political wink wink theater where they effectively have to entertain every single harebrained idea that the right flank has to placate them. the question is, at the end of the day, can they bring them back from the brink? you know, i think over the bush tax cuts and plan b we saw john boehner completely fail there. his grasp over the caucus seems to be loosening. you would think that something would bring them back from the precipice, but i think the country, we get less and less convinced by the day that anybody's in charge here and that anybody has their hands on the captain's wheel. >> support for government shutdown is evaporating over the weekend. tea party rand paul stated it plainly. shut down is a bad idea he said and we'll take a listen to him. >> i don't think shutting down the government is a good idea. but i do think we were elected, conservatives were elected to stop this overreach, this government takeover of health care. when the gov
, the cost of obamacare, the affordable care act, being cited by united parcel services as one of the reasons why they are withdrawing health care benefits from 15,000 spouses of employees. they're saying that in addition to raiising medical costs are t reason why they're having to take away that care. so real pressure on the company and the benefits they can ask on the back of obamacare. >> health care is expensive. there is a coalition of groups that want a nationwide strike of fast food workers calling for higher wages. i want you to listen to something that the former ceo of mcdonald's says how a higher minimum wage would impact the fast food industry. >> the average restaurant in the united states makes 4.6% profit. the labor cost is 30 plus percent. how can you raise the minimum wage almost double and expect to sustain that? i think obamacare will drop 15% to 20% of small businesses off the face of the earth. if they did this minimum wage thing, i'm telling you, there would be another 15% to 20% that will go away. you can't afford it. >> so there is a lot of popular support for increasi
next guest is doing that to hundreds of employees happening as the cry to defund obamacare marchs on. eighty house republicans ask for a government shut down rather than funding obamacare. why ups made news admitting they are planning to drop coverage for hundreds of workers' spouses. that move is already being made move elsewhere. here to talk about is is dick rush, ceo of the furniture maker. thank you for coming on the show. how did you make the decision to do this? >> well, it was a necessary decision. melissa, our company's a little unique, quite different than ups. we're a private company. we're entirely 100% employee owned and we look carefully from top management down to the floor worker on the cost. we want to remain a viable company in the future, so we implemented this, the first year, 2013, that we implemented it. roughly 40% of the spouses were carved out, and now these were people that generally, exclusively had other jobs with companies that did have insurance plans, so there's a fairness here as long as they buy insurance from their employee, no reason to substitute t
want you to obamacare. and why you should care who is staying here this weekend, because you picked up the tab. >> neil: first katy perry pushing the healthcare law. now form el president bill clinton is asked to do the same but a month before people have to start signing up for these exchanges, centers desperation. what's going on, byron? >> what's going on is new polls show a lot of people don't know what is in obamacare and the people who do know don't like it. so october 1st, the first deadline in which the exchanges will be up and running, people will be able to shop for health insurance on statewide markets, and the big deadline, january 1st, where the whole system will be in effect with the exception of the employer mandate which president obama delayed on his own, but the whole system would be in effect and people will pay parentally be receiving subsidies to purchase insurance. >> neil: they might delay provisions, might have to do everything they can, pull out the stops, pull stars from the hollywood and the musical word and political, bill clinton's case, but they'll get peo
it is a smart strategy to shut down the government to defend obamacare. our economy is so precarious right now. shutting down the government will not stop obamacare. it will continue to roll out. limited. a couple of points i would make. republicans control the house of representatives. that is 1/6 of the total government. we do not control the presidency, we do not control the senate. according to recent court decisions, we have very low influence on the elitists on the court. it is hard for us to do things. the second point i would make is when they do those things, as a u.s. senator, i do not have standing in a court of law i have letters out right now chastising a justice department asking why they have not cooperated with the government accountability office. by law, they have to cooperate. except this administration is refusing to do so on multiple events across multiple agencies. i think a lot of ways, they are loyalists in terms of their behavior to congress. the leadership in the congress, especially the senate, is designed for short-term political gain, not designed to solve the prob
on a couple of points. the issue about obamacare. when you are formally back, there is debate on whether or not the effort to de fund or stop obamacare should be tied to approving new funding to ep could the government going. you have taken heat over this because folks felt you were on board with the potential of tieing the two together. now maybe not thinking it is the greatest idea. tell us where you are. >> i opposed obamacare since i cast a vote on christmas eve. which in a party line that was jammed down the throats of the american people. i think i sponsored by last count 27 different pieces of legislation to repeal. it de fund it, dismantle it, delay it. i am a co-sponsor of my colleague senator ted cruise's bill to de fund it. we have to realize what is practical and what can be accomplished through this continuing resolution exercise. it is really not possible unfortunately and this is a difference about tam particulars and not -- tactics and not about the goal. it is impossible to suggest that the president will sign legislation repealing in affect his signature legislative ac
